PREFACE 

This volume is the eighth of the series printed by this 
Society, covering the period of the Act Books at the Diocesan 
Registry at Chester, between the years 1606 and 1700. As 
will be seen by the detailed list printed below it includes 
part of the Manuscript Vol. VII and the whole of Vol. VIII. 

As has been pointed out in previous volumes, these Act 
Books are often very imperfect records for the period they 
cover, and no search should be considered complete without 
reference to the original Marriage Bonds which are filed in 
yearly bundles at the Diocesan Registry for the period 
1661-1700. 

The present volume is one that must be used with especial 
caution as the Registrar appears to have entered up the 
bonds in his Act Book in a more than usually perfunctory 
manner. This is true particularly in the matter of year 
dates. The Registrar seems to have received the Bonds 
from the different Surrogates at no special time. Occasion- 
ally a Surrogate would delay sending in his returns for two 
or three years, and when this happened the Registrar did not 
always trouble to enter them under the correct year, but 
simply " bunched them " into the Volume at the date when 
they arrived. The editor has done his best to check such 
dates by reference to the various Parish Registers that exist, 
but this has not always been possible, so that caution should 
be used, and a reference to the original bond made if a 
searcher wishes to be accurate. The attention of the 
reader is drawn to pages 19-22, 38-41, 65-67, 119, 153-155, 
187, 295-308. 

For the convenience of readers the details are here repeated 
of the Marriage Licence Act Books and Bonds now remaining 
in the Diocesan Registry at Chester.

Soc. L. and C).

Rec. Soc. L. and C). 
Hiatus October 21, 1644, to June 22, 1661. 
V. June 22, 1661, to February 8, i666[-7]. (Vol. 65, 

Rec. Soc. L. and C). 
VI. February 9, i666[-7], to March 24, i679[-8o]. 
(Vol. 69, Rec. Soc. L. and C).

1691-August 31, 1700, Vol. 77, Rec. Soc. L. 
and C). 

Hiatus August 31, 1700, to 1719. 

From this date it became the custom to enter the 
licences in the Act Books as and when the affidavits were 
returned into the Registry by the Surrogates. The dates 
therefore overlap a good deal; this is especially the case 
between the dates 1733 and 1772.

- XI 1733 „ 1772

^ The entries at the end of this volume following the entry of licence (John 
Baxter and Dorothy Brooke) on the 27th June 1642, and extending to 
2ist October 1644, appear to have been irregularly entered, and probably 
do not include all the licences issued for this period.

IV 



REPORT FOR THE YEARS 1920-21 (43rd Year) AND 

1921-22 (44th Year). 
Read at the Annual Meeting held at the AthencBum, Liverpool, 

on 10th May, 1922. 

During the year ended on 30th June, 192 1, no volume was 
issued to the members, but the printing of \^olume 75 (Part 
II of the series of Lancaster Marriage Bonds offered to the 
Society by Mr. J. P. Smith) and of Volume 76 (Mr. Beazley's 
Calendar of Monumental Inscriptions and Wills) was com- 
menced. The Council, having received generous offers of 
£75 towards the cost of Yolume 75 by the member who 
contributed the same sum towards the cost of \'olume 74, and 
also of £25 by Mr. Beazley towards the cost of Volume 76, 
felt justified in proceeding with these volumes. Some delay 
was experienced over the Index to Volume 75, but both 
volumes were dispatched to the members in April, 1922; 
Volume 75 being issued for the year 1920-21, and Volume 76 
for the year 1921-22. The cost of the former was £142 12s., 
and of the latter £173 los. lod. 

At the last Annual Meeting it was decided to increase the 
subscription for the year commencing ist July, 1921 to 
£2 2s., and the Council are glad to report that the increase 
caused very few resignations. The number of paying 
members now stands at 118. 

In November, 192 1, the Hon. Treasurer and the Hon. 
Secretary intimated their wish to resign, after holding office 
for 13 years, and at a Council Meeting held on 7th November, 
192 1 the question of finding their successors, and the future 
of the Society, were fully considered. It was decided that 
every effort should be made before the next Annual Meeting 
to find suitable successors, in the hope that the work of the 
Society might be carried on. So far, no persons to fill these 
ofhces have been found. 

At the Council Meeting held on 24th January, 1921, Mr. 
J. P. Smith was elected a member of the Council. The 
accounts of the Society at 30th June, -1921, showed a credit 
balance of £193 4s. iid. The accounts for the year ending 
30th June, 1922, will not be ready before that date, but the 
Hon. Treasurer anticipates that there will be a credit balance, 
after paying for Volumes 75 and 76, of about £150. 

Notice has been received terminating the joint-tenancv 
with the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire, of the 
stock-room, on 31st December, 1922. 



REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1922-23 (45th Year). 
Read at the Annual Meeting held at the AthencBitm, Liverpool, 

on ^th Septemher, 1923. 
During the year no volume was issued to members; but> 
the cost of printing having fallen materially, it is now 
proposed to resume pubhcation forthwith. 

On 22nd March, 1923, the Society suffered an irreparable 
loss in the sudden death of Mr. John Paul Rylands, F.S.A., 
barrister-at-law, who, for the last fourteen years had been 
President of the Society, and in 1878 was its originator. 
On antiquarian and genealogical subjects he wrote exten- 
sively, and in heraldic matters, especially, was recognised as 
a first rate authority. The following obituary notice of him 
appeared in the Times of 29th March, 1923: — 

" The funeral was held on Tuesday, at Thelwall, of Mr. 
John Paul Rylands, F.S.A., of Oxton, Cheshire, a well- 
known antiquary, who died recently, aged 77. He was a 
member of the Northern Circuit, and practised for many 
years in Liverpool, but retired about twenty years ago. 
His special interest was in genealogy and heraldrv^ He 
was one of the founders, and for many years president, of 
the Record Society of Lancashire and Cheshire, president 
of the Liverpool Athenaeum in 1910, a vice-president of 
the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire, and at one
